Install the Carpet Tiles
Be sure to look on the underside of the carpet tile to find the arrow. The arrow indicates the direction of the pile. You want to make sure that each tile is run in the same direction.
Slide the first floor tile up underneath the baseboards in the corner of the space.
Apply double-sided carpet tape to the corners of the carpet square.
With the first tile in place, lay the next one, making sure the edges are aligned (Image 1).
When it comes time to cut a tile, take your dimensions, mark them on the back of the tile to be cut, and use a utility knife to cut (Image 2).
Use a framing square as a cutting guide to ensure a straight edge when cutting the tile.
Turn the cut edge to the outside. Two factory edges will give a cleaner seam.
When laying carpet tiles in a large area, or an area without square walls, dry fit them first and then come back to secure them after they are all lined up.
